check your connections.

Ignition output signal errors usually come up when (I think it's these ones, for OBD0) A15 and A17(thick white, next to each other) are broken or shorted. check those, and check the distributor wires, the thick white one corresponds with A15 and A17.

well im stumped...i checked the wiring and even soldered the connetions ...( should have done this before i know ) and still get code 15. so i guess ill check the distributor wires and my wiring will have to be redone... i bougfht the afc without the harness and had to make my own.

ill try again in the morning or later tomorrow.

your ignitor in the distributor is going bad.

try another distro and see if that fixes it; if it does im almost certain its your ignitor module.

i think u can swap ignitors from any distro; not sure though... but just swaping distros if the bolt holes line up and they're both the same obd then yeah it should work......



i think the icm in my obd1 is going out now >:O the tach went ------- nuts on me on the way home from my test drive (finally got all the bugs worked otu in my obd1 conversion) but i hit the clutch and let it idle and it started working again........ ih ope it was just a fluke
